Low Fat Nutmeg Waffles

Low Fat Nutmeg Waffles

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (freshly ground if possible)
  • 1 egg (lightly beaten)
  • 1 cup fat free milk
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • butter & maple syrup for serving (optional)
I love nutmeg. It reminds me of my two favorite things: Christmas and donuts (not necessarily in that order). Nutmeg is a very strong spice. Even though the directions call for just a 1/2 teaspoon, the flavor of nutmeg permeates each bite. When the holidays roll around, consider adding 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves. Your kitchen will smell like a Christmas air freshener as the waffles bake. I did make one adjustment (not reflected above) to the recipe as submitted. I found that adding 2 Tablespoons of sugar helped the overall flavor. (This recipe was submitted in 2009. It was tested and photographed in September 2014.)

How To Make Low Fat Nutmeg Waffles

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking power, soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. In another bowl, combine milk, egg, oil and vanilla; stir into the dry ingredients until well combined.

Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to the manufacturers directions. (Most recommend NOT using cooking spray if it's already non-stick, however I use cooking spray for this recipe because there's so little oil in the batter.) Cook until golden brown and lid lifts easily.

Serve with butter and maple syrup.

Low Fat Nutmeg Waffles

2 waffles (without butter & syrup) have 198 calories and 3 grams of fat (1 g saturated.) You can reduce the fat by using egg whites or egg substitute if you desire.

Wow. Very good. Freshly ground nutmeg is the only way to go. I also used Egg Beaters for this and they turned out fine.

OK waffle. I added a 1/4 C of sugar because the batter seemed too salty to me. Was good with blueberries sprinkled over the top.
